THE BOWLES

The Bowles

(Kye - KYE705) 7-inch $11.25

The briefly extant Australian trio of Matthew P. Hopkins, Christopher Schueler (R.I.P.) and Mary MacDougal came together in 2009 and plied their craft across the patchwork of warehouses, attics and D.I.Y. artspaces connecting the Blue Mountains of New South Wales to inner city Sydney, before imploding later that same year. This six-track overview, recorded live to Dictaphone in Sydney, consists of murky cassette montages, strung-out 3am ballads and exquisite-corpse-style constructs that unify and define an original voice few have heard. Includes color postcard. Edition of 350.
